Operation to rescue hostage reveals 200m-long India-Bangladesh tunnel
SILCHAR: Assam Police have found a 200-metre-long tunnel connecting India and Bangladesh in Karimganj while rescuing a man who was abducted from there, SP Mayank Kumar said on Friday. Cops believe the tunnel is used for international smuggling or abduction.
Police unearthed the tunnel while rescuing Dilwar Hossain who was abducted on December 28. The abductors had called his family demanding a ransom of Rs 5 lakh.
After returning, Dilwar informed cops about the tunnel and on Friday, a special team conducted a search operation in Balia area. Kumar said the tunnel is hidden deep inside a forest with a barbed fence over it. Dilwar said the tunnel leads to Sylhet in Bangladesh and miscreants use it regularly to smuggle goods or take abducted people to the other side. "BSF has already been asked to close the Indian side of the tunnel," SP Kumar said.
According to Dilawar, there are around 63 “natural gaps” along an appromately 92km-long border in Karimganj.
Infiltration is rampant through these places as there are 22 unfenced patches. In May 2018, a similar tunnel was found at Madanpur in Karimganj district which was used for cattle smuggling.

Gt needs to be more proactive and keep checking using advance technologies... this is a menace of neighbhor countries trying to enter India
Tunnel was built by Mta. That is where the development fund for Waste Bengal is spent.
mta would issue aadhar cards ro entire Bangladesh population so that she can win ions.
The BSF should IMMEDIATELY check the entire 2,217 Km border between Bangladesh and WASTE Bengal.
I will be very surprised IF they find less than 500 such tunnels
Gt can use drones to detect these on borders of Bangladesh Pakistan &

MB must have known it
This is only one detected by the police. There might be many connecting different districts on both the sides.
Why simply close? keep a watch and gun down any insects coming out of it.
It is difficult to dig a tunnel without the consent of defence personals on both the sides of the border.
